Description: Food, Fun and Faith for over 8,500 peopleThe 21st Annual Lebanese Food and Cultural Festival is April 26-27, 2019.

It did not happen overnight. The planning for the first Saint Elias Lebanese Food and Cultural Festival began in 1998. Norman and Paul Bolus, brothers, had the enterprising idea of starting a food festival for their church. They had always marveled at the success of neighboring Saint Georges Food Festival and the Greek Food Festival. They had also cherished their memories of attending the Birmingham International Festival as children. So thus inspired, they resolutely decided to showcase their heritage in a similar way.

After some initial information gathering from the other local festivals, the brothers began to lobby their idea to the church family. Chorbishop Richard Saad, the pastor of Saint Elias, the Saint Elias Pastoral and Stewardship Committees, as well as the entire parish at the church annual meeting, had to agree to the idea before the necessary resources would be committed. Chorbishop Saad suggested that the Festival be called the Saint Elias Lebanese Food and Cultural Festival to emphasize that this was to showcase our churchs rich traditions and heritage. Everyone readily agreed.
